- Fit your own helmet
- Carry out a simple bike check
- Get on your bike, start cycling, then stop and get off
- Ride your bike using the gears
- Make your bike go where you want it to, including moving around objects safely
- Control the bike with one hand
- Stop quickly if you need to
- Look all around you when you’re riding, including behind, without wobbling
